    so i have just reformatted my computer (for a change) and i have many many .avi video files that i want to play and watch. windows media player is playing them but the colour of the video is like bright green and orange and blue. it gives me an error message before hand saying it might not support the file type. the file is a .avi extension file so i dont understand why it wont play. please help. (i have divx installed and 2 other codec programs yet it still will not play in divx or in windows media player)
    what should i do or is there a codec i used to have that i need to get again?

    Have you tried VLC Player? It supports almost every format with the exception of MKV files that require the CCCP codex. One of the best open source media player for all the odd files, it will also play subtitle files that are not merged into the video.
